Thoughtful Thursdays | New Perspectives

March 14, 2019

This week for Thoughtful Thursdays, I thought it would be good to look at new persepectives. Of every aspect of our lives – you don’t necessarily need to make massive changes to see a difference in something. Make sure you’re appreciating all the things you’re achieving and don’t worry too much about the things that aren’t right!

Go High – when you are in a high-street situation, try visualising yourself rising up high – and look down. From a high vintage point, you see not only yourself but others involved in the situation. As you continue to rise, you become less caught up with the detail of your own feelings and more able to see the bigger picture. It’s a great way to pull back from the intensity of a moment.

Make a win jar – one way to boost your confidence is to remember your wins. At the end of each day, try making a note of anything you have achieved – it doesn’t necessarily have to be a big thing. Write down anything that has simply given you a boost, seeing notes pile up remind you of what you have achieved!

Stand up – sitting for lengthy periods may increase your anxiety levels. So if you’re watching TV or colouring away, make sure you stand up regularly and get moving for a few minutes! Also, if you have a fitbit – it will remind you to walk, so take more notice and just take 10 minutes!

Hopefully this week will allow you to achieve new perspectives in which ever part of your life you feel necessary!

    Great post – it’s given me a lot to think about. I’ve suffered with anxiety for a good 7 years or so now and I definitely find my anxiety levels rise if I’m sitting down or not really doing much. I do Yoga every morning to combat that now 🙂
